Day One:
Environmental Portraits are all the fashion, we will teach you the skills needed to head outside with your subjects and shoot great portrait sessions. How to structure the shoot, how to take pro-portraits and how to shoot using daylight and off camera flash. Spread over the day there is a classroom session followed by a shoot with a model. There are only a maximum of 10 delegates on each course which will give you more than enough opportunity to try all the techniques and get the shots you need.

Day Two:
Day 2 is spent in our 60sqm brand new studio teaching you how to use studio lighting, studio work is still a key skill for a portrait photographer. We will teach you how to light both high key portraiture and low key portraiture. As well as how to measure lights using a flashmeter we have two shoots one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We also discuss how to get the fun element into your studio portraits so you get great expressions, when your subjects look nervous and uncomfortable it make all your efforts worthless so being able to get them to relax will help you get great studio portraits.
